  1. Thanks for using MLB network stats. I saw that the other day, I was talking about this season and I was talking about RBI’s and not just home runs. Thanks for your input.
  2. Ya good point, and everyone put up numbers in that Colorado series... hell, Hosmer had 12 rbi hitting .333 last week lol. So would have been nice to see Reyes in that series, because you are right.. Renfroe wasn’t doing anything that special until last week.
  3. Ya, no way in hell he was going to leave that game that early after being out for two months... but I’m sure it bothered him a lot more than he let on. Hopefully he still starts vs Detroit but I wouldn’t be surprised if they skip that start to make sure he’s fully healthy.
  4. So you have to think the Padres know this also.. do you think they were playing Reyes this much to showcase him for a trade? Clearly Renfroe looks like the better player right now. Everyone keeps talking about Renfroe being the one that gets traded, but he seems to have more long term value, has a very good contract, and can actually play the field. Reyes is a prototypical DH and needs to be in the AL. I know Reyes has tons of potential, but if you are gonna be in the NL you have to field, and if you are going to be a power hitter in the middle of the lineup, you have to capitalize on RBI oppo
  5. Struck out looking twice with runners in scoring position. Both full counts, but gotta swing the bat to hit the ball. A sacrifice fly could have brought in one of them also.... there may be something to his struggles with runners on base. I’ve yet to see him perform very well with runners on. But I’m not giving up on him.
  6. Ya, I was on the fence but I have a few pitchers that just hit the IL and kinda short handed, so I gambled on it. Also, I figured with his talent he wouldn’t get bombed like he did vs a depleted Rangers lineup... clearly he seemed rusty, he had a lot of full counts and got behind in a lot of counts today. Hopefully he makes up for it vs Detroit.
  7. Welp, that backfired. Got 7 k’s from him at least. But his control was not there today, hopefully he will be better next start.
  8. Meanwhile Renfroe just hit another 2 run homer... sometimes injuries can cost you your starting job, and Reyes may be at risk of that if Renfroe keeps hitting like this. He’s a better fielder also.
  9. Reyes and Guerrero Jr. would be a nice middle of the lineup to build off of for Toronto, that’s an interesting idea. If San Diego could get Boyd for Reyes than that is a no brainer move for San Diego in my opinion, especially with the outfield depth that they have. But I don’t see that much incentive for Detroit to do a deal like that right now. San Diego could use a solid 200 inning guy in that rotation, a lot of young guys but they need an anchor to that rotation for sure. Stroman would be good too but I like Boyd better. I’d be interested to hear from others if there are any AL teams that
  10. They need to trade him to the AL so he can DH. Isn’t this the second time already this season he’s injured himself just trying to catch a ball? Doesn’t he have prior history of knee injuries also? He doesn’t look like he has the durability to play a full season in the field, plus he’s just not good at it. I’d love to see him moved so he can DH. Let’s get him in a hitters park while we are at it also 😂.
  11. Yes, it’s gotten ugly. I have been watching a lot of his at bats and I wonder... can he just try to hit a single for once? I mean dude, I understand swinging for the fences but with runners on second or third with 1 or no outs, can you just try to make contact at least? His plate approach is horrible. His situational hitting is horrible. He looks as though he’s pulling his head up early to watch how far the ball is going to go (meanwhile it’s going into the catchers mitt). I don’t see pitchers doing anything crazy to beat him either. Lots of fastballs just right by him, getting him to 0-2 coun
  12. I agree. Hopefully this will keep him available and fresh for the fantasy playoffs. I had already anticipated not having him toward the end of the season and just wanted to get what I could out of him for the regular season, but with the way he’s been pitching I was going to be benching him also. So at least maybe this gives some hope for him coming back and having an impact for playoffs. I would imagine they are doing this to limit his innings and rest but I also believe they realize he can’t be effective as a starter as a two pitch pitcher. Hitters have been sitting on the fastball and
  13. Hey guys I’m new here and you probably don’t value my opinion much and I could be totally wrong, but I saw this live and his arm looked really weird afterward. Also, if you watch the video of it happening with the sound, I’m pretty sure you can hear a popping sound right as he released the ball (again I could be wrong). I think he probably will be out and most likely tommy john... But I’m hoping for the best for him. I really hope I’m wrong. He really plays it down in his postgame interview like nothing is wrong but you see that all the time, so I can’t read too much into that.
  14. I just dropped Shaw and picked up Chavis. I know Chavis doesn’t have a proven track record either and he can’t sustain his current numbers, but he just seems like a better natural hitter that won’t kill my average. I was using Shaw as a bench utility guy and that’s what I plan to do with Chavis unless he keeps raking like this then I’ll plug him in. Hope this was a good move, I just didn’t see how Shaw was going to come close to last seasons numbers at this rate. Already through 100 AB, he looks awful. I’ve watched many of his AB and every time they are awful or he hits right into the shift. I
